A fantastic book on the fundamentals of airbrushing. It is written clearly and concisley and provides comprehensive method to airbrushing, as you would expect from a German author. A refreshing perspective to the usual American books on the subject, they seem pragmatic in comparison (although no less educational). This book is a must for any budding airbrush artist.

OK so the guy can use an airbrush. However if you're looking for a book to advise you on what type of airbrush suits what you're trying to achieve, forget it. OK so he describes what different types of air brush there are, but not what they are best suited to using for. Same with Compressors, explains the 3 main type of compressor but no advice as to what you really should look for in each of them i.e. pressure out-put, oil less compressor etc.
"
Tutorials are a OK(ish) and they also DO avoid the stereotypical type of airbrush art i.e. Skulls, flames and women painted to try and look sexy - oh so 1980's - yawn!!!!. The Dog, Frog and lily are good walk through lessons I guess. The "wave" for any one with a knowledge of how waves are formed and break is totally over the top and inaccurate, then you go to the other extreme where the guy paints a lily that is pretty much photo-realistic.

Just a pity that the "look inside" doesn't show more of the step by step tutorial pages, as if it had I wouldn't have bought it in the first place.

To summarize:

Does Not really give any advice as to what you should look for when buying equipment.
DVD is just a video of him painting the projects in the book - there is NO commentary or narration as to how the guy is going about achieving effects and doing stuff.
OK there is a lot of information about the different parts of an airbrush and how to clean it.

I'm sure some people will find it useful but I didn't. To conclude - Sorry! It's gone back to amazon and I'll be looking for a more informative publication and / or DVD, still don't know what to buy or which compressor and air brush to get to do illustration of real things!
